  1. The mighty Mumlaaaaaaaak! With an attendant caveman, just to highlight how huge this guy is. I just finished him this morning, and with him done I only have one more model to paint from the Bones 4 Lost Valley expansion. His axe incorporates a nude fertility idol, so I've created a link to the uncropped front view.
  2. He's big. He's green. He's covered in spikes. He's your friend and mine: the hornslasher.
  3. I hadn't planned on this purplish skintone for these guys. Originally it was going to be much redder, but I wasn't paying attention to the colors I was mixing, and the basecoat ended up looking lighter and tanner than I had intended. Instead of starting fresh, I made a wash with a lot of purple in it and applied it liberally to their skin, and this was the result.
  4. Here's a lovely family of primitive hominids for your enjoyment. The two cavemen and the caveboy are below, but you'll have to follow the links to see the cavewoman and the fertility idol, since there's some paleolithic nudity involved. Shaman and Fertility Idol (Front) Shaman and Fertility Idol (Back)
  5. I just finished this up yesterday. The color scheme was taken from one of my kids' picture books (How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?); there was a polacanthus in there that was just as spiky as this guy, so I thought the green and purple would look nice.
  6. 44079 Giant Cave Sloth (#617) Fossils of Megatherium (which literally means "Great Beast") aka the giant ground sloth have been found in deposits dated to the Pliocene era 5.33 million and up to the Holocene, about 8.000 years ago. Which means it actually may have been contemprorary to early modern humans. Who in turn might even have killed them off. After all, a 4 ton elephant sized sloth might be both easy to catch and good eating. 50mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  7. 44075 Axebeak (#608) Axebeak, or Phorusrhacos, was one of the great terror birds of the Miocene era, about 23-2.6 million years ago. Also it is, in fact, the direct forebearer of the modern era Chocobo bird. This Primal Chocobo was rather more bloody minded than the modern one, and would not accept any riders whatsover. The base I printed out for it is 65x35mm. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  8. 44082 Cave Bear (#624) The cave bear lived from the Pleistocene era (That's the Ice Ages to us normal folks) which lasted from 2.580.000 years ago to about 11.700 years ago. However, it seems to have gone extinct about 24.000 years ago. Which certainly is contemporary with modern humans. Them cave bears must have been delicious. And the shaggy furs kept us warm in those cold, cold caves. 60x35mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  9. 44078 Giant Snake (#616) Yeah, snakes have been around since the Garden of Eden. The earliest fossils of snakes we have date from the Cretaceous period, 145-66 million years ago). Snakes seem to be a successful group of animals, still alive and slitherin'. I tried to give it a relatively realistic patterning with colouration that might work on the autumnal flock I use these days. 32mm base. Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  10. 44067 Skywing Stormcaller (#605) Pteranodonman! I modelled the paint scheme after a seagull. This one has a South American Prehispanic vibe going on. Probably on account of the headdress. Not the macahuitl at all. No sirree Bob! 32mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs. Cross referencing the tribe names in the flavor text with the kickstarter expansion image we find that each model represents a separate tribe: From left to right Skywing, Bloodcrest. Blacktooth, Thunderfoot and Armorback. So that is five distinct tribes with a totalt of one miniature each available ;P These have been released to retail by Reaper, so they have proper SKU numbers. (# in parenthesis are from the expansion image) You are in big trouble now, little man. 44067 Skywing Stormcaller Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Chris Lewis Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com
  11. 44065 Thunderfoot Defender (#603) Triceratopsman! Mostly the same colours as the upcoming Triceratops aka Thunderfoot Behemoth. 35mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs.

  12. 44063 Blacktooth Savage (#601) Tyrannosaurman! Painted in mostly the same scheme as the T-Rex-lookalike Blacktooth Terror I recently painted. Black and red being markers for "evil". He likes to wear thunderfoot skulls as pauldrons. 40mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs. Cross referencing the tribe names in the flavor text with the kickstarter expansion image we find that each model represents a separate tribe: From left to right Skywing, Bloodcrest.

  13. 44066 Bloodcrest Smasher (#604) Parasaurolophusman! Just some old-school dino colours for this one. 35mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs.

  14. The second add on tie-in to the Lost Valley: the Thunderfoot Behemoth, for 8 dollars in the kickstarter campaign. An almost-Triceratops, biggest difference is the crest of horns around the rim of it's skullplate that the fossil record does not quite support as far as I know. I went with the same-ish colour for this and the thunderfoot defender sauroid, as they were painted at the same time, and why not? I ditched the original base and made a 125x100mm for it instead. Paint big minis with big brushes! I used a 12mm wide make up brush for most of this mini. On a black undercoat I drybrushed the top half or so with Vallejo Green Brown 70.879 and from the bottom with Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh 74.015. I honestly don't remember the other colors...some reddish brown, an ochre yellow, a bone white and a few others. And when the paint was on, I used CItadel Athonian Camoshade to wash the whole thing, taking care to remove any pooling with a brush. After that was dry, I carefully drybrushed the main colours one more time to lighten them a bit. The horns were done in the pale flesh with the camoshade, and then drybrushed with two different off whites. Details like the eyes, based and done. Also consider for a bit what kind of environment that promotes the evolution of this kind of size, armour and weaponry in prey animals. This is a twelve ton herbivore. with armour-piercing horns! in comparison, a heavy modern day Rhino clocks in at 2.2 tons. A triceratops could be more than five times that! Yeah, it figures it would not have them if it did not need them...T-rexes and Triceratops did live at the same time and the same place...the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America. This is about 75-80 million years after the jurassic period...so that park has a lie for a name. A triceratops would be around 3m tall and 9m long, so the Thunderfoot is not far off it would seem. up to 12.000 kilos. That's a solid "oh HELL no!" on the fluffy scale. Thunderfoot Behemoth an add on in the Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Classic Bonesium PVC probably available from reapermini.com soon
  15. 44064 Armorback Barbarian (#602) Anklyosaurman! I found a picture of a tortoise with this colouration, so I went with it 32mm base. These are members of the Sauroid Tribes according to the flavour text. (Assuming the "Sauriod" is a typo, and the later "Sauroid" is the correct name). Each of "these warring tribes are highly territorial and will brook no trespassers on their sacred lands", and they constantly battle both amongst themselves and with the warlike Jade Fire Clan orcs.

  16. "Lost Valley" is one of the expansions to Bones 4, and incidentially the first of the expansions I will tackle after completing the Bones 4 Core set. Lost Valley is, as the name suggests, the Land that Time Forgot style prehistoric setting where dinosaurs and cavemen live side by side. Or rather, where Dinosaurs rule the land while Men cower in caves. More than anything, the minis make me think of the 1981 movie Quest for Fire: The classic Ron Pearlman's acting debut movie. If you have not seen it, do so. It does conflate several periods of mankind's evolution, but is not all that far off being a reasonably historically accurate representation of the early stone age as far as I know. It does not call itself historical anyhow, but a "science fantasy". Also Iron Maiden made a song inspired by this film. Note that Iron Maiden competely craps out in the very first line of the song: "In a time when dinosaurs walked the earth When the land was swamp and caves were home In an age when prize possession was fire To search for landscapes men would roam." The rest is a good summary of the movie, but critically there are no dinosaurs in the film, or even in the time period portrayed. The Movie is set about 80.000 years ago. Dinosaurs had been extinct more or less 65.000.000 years already. Dayum! The Lost Valley, however, does not care about such trifling detail. So, on to the miniatures: According to the flavour text on the inside flaps on the Expansion box, The People of the Dawnlands are peaceful hominids that are fleet of foot and grow their own crops in the central plain region of the Lost Valley. They worship the goddess Makoteli, a deity of Fertility and Agriculture. Presumably the Fertility Idol represents the aforementioned Makoteli. #610 Shaman go to the mountainsofminis if you want to see the shamans nipples #611 Spearman Male Pattern Baldness was a thing also in the Stone Age. #612 Caveboy Carrying the Sacrificial Orange. #613 Clubber The skin was done in grey with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade, carefully drybrushed with Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh and light grey. The two braves have oval 25x35mm bases, as I did not want to use 30mm rounds on them, but their action pose was too wide for a 25mm round. Maybe I should have printed out some 25x30 or 25x32mm for these but I just used what I had to hand, which happened to be 25x35mm. #615 Fertility Idol This statue is presumably based on (aka copied off) the actual stone age figurine "Venus of Willendorf" found in 1908 in Austria and that dates back around 30.000 years. The real thing is about 11cm tall, carved out of limestone and and painted with ochre. As such it is one of the earliest examples of painted miniatures known. Truly, this hobby has ancient roots! https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2020/04/200410-reaper-bones-4-lost-valley-44077-people-of-the-dawnlands-conan.jpg Wait! Why so angry? All I did was help myself to some of your delicious breaksfast spread there!?! 44077: People of the Dawnlands (4) 44093: Fertility Idol Bones 4, Lost Valley Expansion, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bonesium PVC 25mm and 25x35mm bases available from reapermini.com These models were painted on or around the 8th and 9th of April.
  17. Not actually a part of the Lost Valley expansion, but a separate add on: The Blacktooth Terror. A thunder lizard so large, he needs to hunker down to get into range of his prey. If you're happy and you know it clap your hands! If you're happy and you know it clap your hands! If you're happy and you know it just you clap your hands to show it...whut? Oh! That makes me so ANGRY! RIP AND TEAR! Anybody remember Primal Rage? The arcade beat 'em up-game? Where assorted dinosaurs and giant apes went at it proper mortal kombat-style? I do. And I like to find inspiration for my paint schemes in just such ancient, half-forgotten tat. I remember playing this at my local arcade in the days when that was a thing. Later I got it on my Playstation. Yes, the first one. I tried seeing if the game was available anywhere legal these days, but no luck. One would think that this would be a good title for GOG.com or something. This paint scheme is taken from the Primal Rage character named Diablo. Red all over with black stripes on the back. Evil through and through. Lots of fire and lava all around. Black undercoat. Scalecolor Navy Blue all over. When dry, almost drybrushed liberally with Vallejo Nocturna Crimson 74.018, but keeping the brush from being too wet so the blue is visible here and there. Highlights were then carefully drybrushed with Vallejo Nocturna Lipstick 74.029, as this colour will cover and we don't want to much coverage in this case. Over this I used Army Painter Dragon Red to make it proper RED. Further hightlights were drybrushed with Army Painter Pure Red and a very light Army Painter Lava Orange. The Black bits are done in Vallejo Vallejo Model Color Black Grey 70.862 with a slight hint of Vallejo Model Color Dark Sea Green 70.868 and Vallejo Model Color Black 70.950. Details, base and all done in two or three hours. When the model has such excellent texture as this one has, it is almost like it paints itself. Coupled with the most of the model being the same colour, it really does not take all that much time either. The key is to use large, flat brushes. *sniff* *sniff* hm...I'm sure I brushed my teeth this morning...where is this bad breath coming from? Blacktooth Terror, a $12 add on for the Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 140x110mm base will be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
  18. The Stone Giant Champion (44083), Stone Giant Carver (44084), and Stone Giant Guard (44085) are among my favorite models from the Lost Valley expansion. Especially the champion. She's awesome. I just finished these this morning.
  19. Like many of you stuck at home right now, I have a lot more time to paint. I'm a little over halfway through the Lost Valley expansion but I've only recently taken photos. Here's the lovely carnotaurus in all of his chompy glory.
  20. Jumping in here with my first post of miniatures! I've been painting for over 25 years, and once upon a time I did it competitively, but nowadays I prefer to stick to a straightforward tabletop quality because I can paint a lot more a lot faster. I have a large backlog of stuff to catch up on. These cavemen are from the Lost Valley expansion from the Bones 4 Kickstarter. I cut off their integral bases and put them on Reaper's 1" round gaming bases, because I want all of the bases for my Lost Valley stuff to match.
  21. Here's the Clan of the Black Bear from Reaper Miniatures: Bones 4. The only reason the Clubber is solo is I had lost him and photographed him later on.
